Our Research Strategy, the research we fund, how to apply for funding, how to get involved in research, and our research news and events.

A new report published today shows that stroke research remains severely underfunded compared to the devastating impact it has on people’s lives. The UK Health Research Analysis 2018 also shows stroke research receives much less funding than many other areas of health research.
Our 5 year research strategy demonstrates where our vision lies and how we aim to get there.
Medical research is essential to develop new treatments and therapies for stroke so that patients in the UK can get the best possible care. Clinical trials are conducted to test whether a new medical intervention is safe and effective and these trials often rely on the participation of volunteer stroke survivors.
If you’re looking for people affected by stroke to be involved in your research, the Stroke Association can help.
The Medical Research Council (MRC) has launched a new £5m call for capital investment to support between two and five human tissue banks with linked data resources. Awards will be made to teams of academics working in close partnership with medical research charities.
As part of our research programme, we fund exceptional candidates from stroke professional backgrounds to our prestigious Postgraduate and Postdoctoral Fellowship positions.
It's estimated that about half of people admitted to hospital with a stroke will have lost control of their bladder, and a third will experience loss of bowel control. Last week, a research incontinence workshop was held at Guy's Hospital London, with the aim of stimulating research into incontinence.
We have several partner organisations which we co-fund research with, as well as other organisations we work with to increase the focus on stroke research.
